What can the thermostat do?
The new Nest Thermostat learns what you like and creates a schedule for your home, helping you save energy. With a larger display and a sharper resolution, it’s simply beautiful. Controllable from your smartphone, the Nest Thermostat notices when you’ve left home and automatically turns down the heat. That means you can set the heating to come on while you’re on the way home, and the house will be just as you like it when you get in. You’ll see how much heat you use every day and get an energy report every month to track and manage your energy use. The thermostat even learns how long your home takes to heat up, so you only use as much heat as you actually need.

Can this control my hot water?
The 3rd generation Nest Learning Thermostat can now control and manage your hot water tank and give your hot water a boost when you need it. Your hot water can also be turned off if you are away for a few days.

What is Farsight?
You can choose what Farsight shows you in your Nest Thermostat’s Display settings:
• The Target Temperature, a larger version of what’s usually on your Nest Thermostat's screen
• An analog clock
• A digital clock
• None (off)
No matter which of these you choose, your thermostat will always go to sleep to conserve power and show you important messages such as smoke and carbon monoxide alerts from your Nest Protect, Furnace Heads-Up, or any other error or alert that requires your attention.
With Farsight enabled, your Nest Thermostat will wake up as soon as it senses your presence, up to 20 feet away. Farsight takes advantage of the 3rd gen Nest Thermostat’s high-resolution screen so it’s easy to read from afar. Now you can just glance across the room to check the time or the target

What is True Radiant?
True Radiant will make your radiant system run like it always should have - according to your schedule. No more guessing and turning the heat on hours earlier than you need it. Tell your Nest Thermostat what temperature you want and True Radiant will take care of the rest. This setting is automatically on.

We’ll install your Nest thermostat for you
Maplin have teamed with TSG to offer a professional Nest installation service. Our team will come at a time that suits you, install everything you need and even show you how it works. Call in-store or call our Customer Service team on 0333 400 9500* and ask to book a Nest installation.

What advantage do I have of buying the extra Nest items?
You can link all Nest items with each other. This can make your home safer and even more secure. Link Nest Protect with the Nest Thermostat so when the alarm detects rising carbon monoxide levels, it automatically shuts off the heating to keep you safe. Link up with the Nest Cam and when the alarm detects smoke, the camera starts to record so you can go back and see what happened.

* Calls to 0333 numbers are charged at the same rate as dialling a local or national number. if your fixed line of mobile service has inclusive minutes to local or national (01/02) numbers, then calls to 0333 are counted as part of this inclusive call volume.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My new favourite toy Works extremely well. Used to replace an old wired Drayton manual thermostat. Installation instructions are very simplified so you will need to know what you're doing if DIY job. Improved energy efficiency by having full control.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent device Got this a week or so a go works really well. We do have a gravity fed system and it works fine. Although it's a new boiler not an old one sw we can have heating and water independently.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great but doesn't work with Gravity Fed hot water systems I bought this item and I was really excited by it. However, if you have a gravity fed hot water system it wont work for you. You will know if you system is gravity fed if your current programmer doesn't allow you to have the heating on without the hot water also being on. In the end I had to go for the Hive system as it has the gravity fed support.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product I had the first gen one for e years just upgraded to this one, and no issues not sure what people are on about with not working on gravity fed systems, mine has been find for the last 3 years, saved me a lot on my bills as well, looks great and app works great. Pity though if you want to add cctv to ststem, there system is way to expensive, the stat is great though.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great piece of kit Just got this installed a few weeks ago and the Nest has learned my scheduled in about 3 weeks or so. Looks beautiful on the wall and love the integrations with IFTTT.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome. Just awesome. Such a great piece of kit. Looks amazing and works flawlessly. Goes well with the smoke detectors too.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not compatible with Gravity fed systems I wasn't sure what star rating to give this product as I had to return the item. No where on the box did it say that it was not compatible with a gravity fed system. If your heating programmer doesn't allow you to have heating on without however on, then you have a gravity fed system and this will not work.

I have 3 zones in my house running off my boiler can I have a NEST stat for each?  Kit is £189 for self install.   How much for 2 additional zone stats?

Asked by: NJC73
Hi there, You would actually *require* one Nest for each zone, as Nest is a single zone Thermostat. We'll leave Maplin to comment on their pricing. Team Nest UK

I need a 3 or 4 core mains cable to connect my Nest Heat Link to my boiler a few metres away - can you recommend a suitable cable please? Connections required for Live Supply, Live Return and Neutral.

Asked by: silks
Hi there, Nest Support can only recommend installation is carried out by a certified Nest Pro, or indeed if Maplin have an installation service available. This is for safety reasons and indeed to prevent damage to your Nest and heating system. If you need a Nest Pro, you should Google Nest Pro Finder (As I don't think I could post a link in this response). Hope this helps. Team Nest UK
